Titled "TIMELESS "

Such an important emotion in the preservation of wild spaces, it is hope that drives us on.Hope that despite the seemingly endless fight against the destruction of nature, others will be inspired to join our cause and that the Luangwa Valley and the magnificent animals that live here will endure.

He creates images using a variety of techniques and creative ideas to provide a fresh prospective on the natural world, with a particular emphasis on black and white, infrared and aerial photography, sometimes in combination.
The subjects of Patrick's images are the iconic wild animals of the Luangwa Valley. Each one is a character with a defined role in his photo narrative of life in this unspoilt corner of Zambia. Patricks photograph's provide an insight into their uniqueness , recognising their different temperaments and individuality. Through his photography as an observer cannot help but feel an emotional connection with the magnificence of this region, where the untamed Luangwa River and the valley's fertile soils and lush vegetation create a wildlife haven like no other in Africa. It is a place of unparalleled beauty and dramatic seasonal variations, an environment that demands protection.
